filebot failing to find "tosh 0" on thetvdb

Post by belgarth »

[email protected]:~/Downloads/TV-Shows/Unsorted$ filebot --q "Tosh 0" -list --db thetvdb
Exception: Failed to auto-select search result: []
Failure (°_°)
[email protected]:~/Downloads/TV-Shows/Unsorted$ filebot --q "Tosh.0" -list --db thetvdb
Tosh.0 - 1x01 - Afro Ninja
Tosh.0 - 1x02 - Miss South Carolina
Tosh.0 - 1x03 - News Puke Kid
Tosh.0 - 1x04 - Scarlet Takes a Tumble

This creates a problem because the epsiode autodetector detects from the filename as "Tosh 0", not "Tosh.0":
[email protected]:~/Downloads/TV-Shows/Unsorted$ ls
[email protected]:~/Downloads/TV-Shows/Unsorted$ filebot --q "Tosh 0" -non-strict -rename --db thetvdb --format "/home/belgarth/Downloads/TV-Shows/{n}/{n} - {s}x{e} - {t}" /home/belgarth/Downloads/TV-Shows/Unsorted/*
Rename episodes using [TheTVDB]
Failed to fetch episode data: [Tosh 0]
Exception: Unable to match files to episode data
Failure (°_°)
so it fails to match.

tvrage doesn't have this problem, it appears to be specific to thetvdb. When I do a search on "Tosh 0" though, it does find the show.

Yep, TheTVDB query engine fails on stuff like this because it sees "tosh.0" as one word. Search by "tosh" and "0" doesn't work in this case.

@see ... anguage=en VS ... anguage=en

You can check in the tvdb api forums, I'm pretty sure this is a well-known issue that hopefully get's fixed with the coming API overhaul.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
